As with past book fairs, time is provided for your child to browse before purchasing. Students will receive a blank “wish-list” form to write books they would like, in case you’d like to send money to school with your child.*A new feature for the Scholastic Book Fairs, is an ewallet payment system, please go to: http://www.scholastic.com/bookfairs/findafair , search Morris, and about halfway down the homepage, you will see a “Go Cash-free!” spot to set up an online account. There is no fee for this feature, and it will allow your child to spend only what you load onto the account. Any unused funds will be refunded to your credit card.

Teachers will also have books put aside during the book fair for parents interested in donating books to classroom libraries.

Thank you for your continued support of our school library fundraiser.Any questions can be referred to Jennifer Fodor at jfodor@rsd6.org.

**If you are interested in volunteering, please call/text Margaret Coe 203-725-6018

Over April vacation a new phone system was installed at Goshen Center School.When you call you will hear an introductory message with options for choosing different lines, an absence, front office, and cafeteria.This message is not the phone on night mode. We no longer have a night mode and the phone will always ring. If no one is here to answer, it will allow you to leave a message.

In the past, several phone numbers would get you a line into the school.With this new system, we have only one number 860-491-6020. The old numbers will not work any longer.If you do experience any difficulties, please let us know as soon as possible so that we may address them.If you are having trouble calling the school, you can always send an email to gcs@rsd6.org.This email is checked often.
